Hi Ray

I don't know if anyone answered this but my experience is this: I have some
users running on WYSE terminals and an XP farm on 2000 AS and they're quite
mischievous. They like sending each other msgs using NET SEND as it really
winds them up when I send a console msg and they can't reply. It works fine,
as the users have a session and have authenticated the messenger service
sends it to the user rather than the server.

Or at least that's what happens here, if I were you I would send an
innocuous msg like test to a close colleague and check it works but it

Subject: [windows2000] net send by username

Hi list,

Sometimes I want to net send someone and I do not know what computer the
person is on, so I just net send by name.  Now I am paranoid about that,
however.  We have a bunch of Citrix servers that people use, and I'm
wondering if I net send jusername and that person is logged into a
Citrix server (W2K Advanced Server) and the messenger service finds that
person there first, will the message appear in everyone's session in
Terminal Services?  When I view the net bios table of one of these
Citrix servers, I do see that there are <03> entries for each user who
is logged in to the server.  I don't want to really test it too much, so
as to not confuse people if they do all get the message.  Does anyone
happen to know what would happen if the messenger service finds the <03>
registration on the Citrix server first?
